Pharoah Sanders at Dizzy's in New York, 1/29-2/1 PDF Print
Written by Ronaldo Oregano   
Tuesday, 27 January 2015

"If there's anyone who has that quality of freedom, it's Pharoah. He's probably the best tenor player in the world." - Ornette Coleman

Jazz legend Pharoah Sanders will appear for four nights at Dizzy's in Manhattan on Thursday, Janury 29th through Sunday, February 1st. NEA Jazz Master Pharoah Sanders possesses one of the most distinctive tenor saxophone sounds in jazz. Harmonically rich and heavy with overtones, Sanders' sound can be as raw and abrasive as it is possible for a saxophonist to produce, and although he made his name with expressionistic, nearly anarchic free jazz in John Coltrane's late ensembles of the mid-'60s, Sanders' later music is guided by more graceful concerns. In the decades after his first recordings with Coltrane, Sanders developed the capability of playing convincingly in a variety of contexts, from free to mainstream, and as a mature artist he has discovered a hard-edged lyricism that has served him well. Mr Sanders will be joined by William Henderson on piano, Nat Reeves on bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums.

Kurt Rosenwinkel Quartet at the Villlage Vanguard 1/6-11 PDF Print

“Rosenwinkel’s music represents the sound of the future, just as bebop once did.”  -Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

Kurt Rosenwinkel

The Kurt Rosenwinkel Quartet with Aaron Parks on piano, Eric Revis on bass, and Allan Mednard on drums will apprear at the Villlage Vanguard on Tuesday, January 6th through Sunday, January 11th.  A guitarist whose harmonic ideas and sinuous, legato approach make him readily identifiable, Rosenwinkel is perhaps the most beloved jazz guitarist of his generation. Here’s what guitar legend Bill Frisell said about Kurt Rosenwinkel: “There’s this kind of fluidity and architecture in the lines that he plays that I don’t think I’ve heard anybody else do. There’s a mystery in it to me. It’s not obviously derived from some other player. He’s really developed his own language with the musical information and physically the way he’s playing the instrument.”
